Boston, MA and Montreal, Quebec (PRWEB) November 16, 2005
The Nano 50™ Awards, presented by Nanotech Briefs magazine, recognize the top 50 technologies, products, and innovators that have significantly impacted, or are expected to impact, the state of the art in nanotechnology.
Nanometrix is the only Canadian winner of the prestigious award presented at a ceremony, which was held on November 10th in conjunction with the NASA Tech Briefs Nano 2005 in Boston. Earlier this year Nanometrix was similarly honored at nanotechnology conferences in Tokyo, Anaheim & SEMICON West in San Francisco.
“The winners of the Nano 50 awards are the best of the best – the innovative people and technologies that will continue to move nanotechnology to key mainstream markets,” said Linda L. Bell, publisher of Nanotech Briefs.
The Nanometrix technology uses the fundamental natural forces of gravity and hydrodynamics to facilitate the organized and structured assembly of particles.
The thin film technology has applications in polymer electronics and other fields where semiconductors can be layered onto flexible & rigid surfaces, in improved fuel cells for cars, in biotechnology, in photonics and new display applications such as flexible plastic display devices, display embedded into clothing, or head mounted displays are also possible.
“This honor confirms our status as one of the leaders in nanotechnology both in Canada & the world” said Patrick T. O'Connor, Director General of Nanometrix.
Nanometrix' innovative MG-1™ deposition process provides a unique method of producing monolayers of nanoparticles and ultra thin polymers films. The MG-1™ process uses patented monolayer technology to produce coatings of polymers as well as nanoparticles that are uniform, smooth, and cost effective.
